We are going to continue the change your vote option for one more month.  There have been some RAZOR thin margins of loss by a few topics so to make it interesting this time there are 10 choices for 5 shows but everyone gets 6 votes, as always the top 50% will make the cut.

Remember this thread is also where to suggest new topics for September's poll, a few on this list are from last month's suggestions.

Another thing I have done this time is YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR VOTE!  You can do that right up until the day the poll closes.  This means if you have voted for a clear loser but want a topic that is close over those that are winning you can come in at the end and switch over.

This should be fun, more fun that the 2016 Assclown Circus anyway!

After all the song and dance routines of the conventions are done, how about a discussion on what you see ahead with the next four years. Changes we might see. Things that won't change. How to survive in the middle of all this without getting burned.  I think that with all the political fever that goes on in election cycles we forget that each of us can make the biggest difference by just being good citizens. Would love to hear your take on this topic. Thanks

How about a TSP homestead update? With future plans and ideas. I've always enjoyed the previous shows about your homestead.

Farming/permaculture for attracting game would be my choice for Sept.  What are the considerations for making a place attractive to wild birds, deer, and other game animals?  What practices will encourage them to hang out at my place until I need them, and what are some harvesting considerations to avoid disruption when I DO need them?

It would also be interesting to have an analysis of how the Amish live, and where can their skills/lifestyle be learned, and what are the significant gaps to be prepared for (I don't know how they do medicine etc).  Am I passing my future every time I pass an Amish buggy?

I love both of these ideas.  I don't know if you can make a whole show out of the first topic, but maybe you can expand it perhaps.  The Amish one would be awesome!

RedLegA1 here, I'm a Post Modern Homesteader..... -- I have been dealing with a serious Raccoon invasion in my "Living Systems Greenhouse". I can explain that structure if necessary but for this post it houses all small livestock, fish and plant start production. I have lost 5 chickens in 7 days = 1000 eggs this year..... I have taken multiple measure to protect the livestock to include a game cam and live trap, got pics but have not trapped the scoundrels. Not being a trapper I had to figure this out. looked at lots of youtube, Joe Woods is a great help, still working on the figuring part. Purchased Duke Dog Proof traps thru TSPAZ, thanks. An earlier post mentioned Permaculture/Farming for attracting game but that would not make a full show. Okay, do 1/2 on attracting and 1/2 on trapping the critters. My guess is that you might could devote a whole show to the trapping issue. What I found out is that these raccoons are smart and they come in family size. I have been totally frustrated, on edge and stressed over the losses. I paid a lot of money for good quality meat birds and to loose a few of them is a like stabbing myself in the hand. Also, with this small livestock comes snakes and they can wipe out an egg clutch, for instance I had a broody Buff Orpington on a clutch of 10 eggs, she was doing a good job. A snake pushed her off the nest, I think late in the afternoon, and ate most of the clutch. The Raccoon cornered her in the yard and murdered her, that is a devastating loss. So,  the trapping show would be good for me.

Jack, I would love to hear a show on setting up town hall meetings, groups meetings or what ever you call them in different parts of the country that focus on some issues discussed on the show.  Namely what we can do in local and state level government to be the annoying wasp or the squeaky wheel, on subjects like gun rights, school issues, local taxes, state level taxes, and issues that we may face in our local parts of the country.  I would like to say it could be a blueprint for action, but you have your solid insight and experience on where it can go.  Those who seek to do us harm, that desire to take our rights and liberties, to tax the hell out of us- they are doing this already.
My personal area of concern is going to the Future of Gun Rights in America episode, and how we are seeing the schools and media portraying firearms.  I would love to be able to take a meeting blueprint, put points in a clear and concise manner, and be able to advance this on a local level. It can even extend to include the other areas of concern, or things you may see or have experience in over the course of the 8 years. 
  And I must say this- we have many patriots out there who lack a solid cause and direction, yet are desperate to do something. They see the concerns from Oregon and circus there, the over reach of the government on so many levels, the loss of our country to "progressivism" and division.  You are right in pointing out that gun rights is a solidifying factor, and despite regional or minor differences, history has shown that uniting together under the same banner with some solid direction and a cause can make things happen.  This may give some of them a way to hold the line, and to take back our rights and liberties.  That may be a show on its own, or part of one that you build... that is your gift.

Oh, future topic ideas.

How to deal with squirrels and deer. I know you've talked about it before. But man, this summer they're tearing up North GA.

So,  the trapping show would be good for me.

I've struggled with racoons as well, but I figured out the trick. I use a live trap (cage style), and place the trap under a blanket, making a dark hiding hole for it. In an enclosed space, with limited options of places to hide, it will run into the trap. The tricky part is being there when the racoon is to make it run. This is extremely effective however, I used this technique with success many times. Like anything, you get better with practice. Don't be surprised if you're screwing around for a half hour trying to corner him the first time. But after you've done it a couple of times, it takes just minutes.

Selling Your House in Any Market Under Any Cirumstances.

I would love to hear this one. I am working hard to overcome alot.of bad decisions so that I can build some freedom into my families life.  I don't know how to vote or if the topic is still open, but I would pay good money for this one, lol. Another bad decision??? Nahhhh not where the TSP is concerned.
